James A. Lovell- There are people who watch things happen

There are people who make things happen, there are people who watch things happen, and there are people who wonder what happened. To be successful, you need to be a person who makes things happen.
James A. Lovell

As humans, we all have 'needs' and 'wants' to live our best life. However, the only thing that separates us is our mind. Some people want success but do nothing to achieve it, and some people work hard to become successful. James A. Lovell does a great job pointing out the various types of people in this world and their attitude towards success.

As James mention in this quote, successful people make things happen and its the one thing they all have in common. They turn their dreams into reality by making sacrifices, working endless hours and discipline.

James A. Lovell   James A. Lovell was born March 25, 1928. He is an American NASA astronaut and a retired US naval captain.  He is well-known for making several historical space flights to the moon and Apollo 13. Lovell made an everlasting impact on space travel and Astronautics. This was not an easy task for him, but his admirable, risk-taking, imaginary traits can be a reminder of what perseverance and hard work can do for anyone that has a dream. James A. Lovell rises above his limitation to reach for his dreams. From his example, we can learn to think outside of the box and, make things happen! He didn't just sit there with a dream, and imagine flying to the moon, he also took actions, made sacrifices, to turn his dreams into possibilities.
